Does anyone on here know where I can buy A "hobby" pack of zener diodes? What I mean is a pack of, say, 5 each of a range of voltages. Bit like the packs of caps and resistors that can be had easily enough.

Had a Google and fleabay search but haven't found anything yet.

Assuming your in the UK, then Rapid Electronics sell zenners at around 2p each with no minimum qty. You could just nip onto their page and order as many of each value as you like.

You could get 10 of each 500mw value; thats 25 different values (250 pieces) for around £4 + VAT.

The problem would be the postage - around £5 unless you order over around £30 worth of goodies in total, then the postage is free.

Are you in a hurry ?

This site sells a couple of sizes of kits, plus the individual values.

Well, I'm not in the UK but the Republic of Ireland. Some firms really do take the mick (pun not intended) with postage charges - especially since postage to the North is generally the same as the rest of the UK, but for the South it can be horrendous even if we are on the same landmass. I can get stuff posted to a relative in the UK and then get them to post the stuff on - but it's not ideal.

Not in any great need for the zeners, it's just that I don't have a great range of them to hand - and never the right value anyway. ;-)
